2022 Perodua Alza – X, H, AV variants, specs detailed

Perodua officially announced the opening of order books for the 2022 Alza this morning. After months of speculation, we finally have the first official details of the all-new MPV, a seven-seater sister of the latest Toyota Avanza/Veloz and Daihatsu Xenia.

UPDATE: The 2022 Perodua Alza has been launched in Malaysia. Check out our spec-by-spec comparison of the three available variants here.

The Malaysian market leader says that the new Alza boasts “significant improvements in terms of driving comfort and versatility” over its long-serving JDM-based predecessor. It’s much larger too.

The D27A Alza is powered by a 1.5 litre Dual VVT-i engine, and the NA four-pot is paired to the latest D-CVT automatic gearbox. This powertrain combo is likely to be the same one found in the current facelifted Myvi.

The new Alza is classified as an energy efficient vehicle (EEV) and is capable of claimed 22.0 km/l fuel economy in the MDC. That’s likely to stand for Malaysian Driving Cycle, a new, locally-developed testing protocol based on local conditions. Eco Idle auto start-stop is standard.

Three variants of the new Alza will be offered – X, H and AV. The tentative RRP for the new Alza is RM62,000 for the X, RM68,000 for the H and RM75,000 for the AV, on-the-road without insurance. The actual prices will be revealed during the official launch, which is set to happen next month. As expected, the prices are higher than the old Alza, which was priced from RM52,661 to RM60,525, if you discount the sub-RM50k manual version.

Highlighted points in the flyer include an electronic parking brake (EPB) with auto brake hold, the above-mentioned 22 km/l FC, a chrome/gloss black front grille, a spacious seven-seater cabin, and a 360-degree panoramic view monitor. The latter and EPB are Perodua firsts. Not every variant will get all of the above, so check out our spec-by-spec guide below, based on officially available details.

    TOTALLY ABSURD for a 7-seater NOT to have curtain airbags to add to the existing FRONT and SIDE (even with AEB as standard) and rightfully, the H variant should have a standard of SIX airbags just like the AV variant – why can Aruz have 6 as standard and Alza can’t? I can’t brain this at all man!!!!

        The base model Ativa and Alza starts at almost same pricing.
        Perhaps,P2 doesnt mind this Alza might cannabalise some of its sales volume from Ativa,for buyers who are price sensitive and want somewhat a bigger vehicle.
        Either way,the sales still go to P2.
        Close relative UMW will not launch any new Avanza due to this development.
        Perhaps,P1 should revamp the sunset Exora or bring a Geely based mpv to spice up the competition.

      why always complaint about the things u are not getting on certain variant. u have an option, u want all the bells and whistles then just pick the top variant and pay for it. no point complaint why the lowest variant not have this and not have that. deh, cos it’s cheaper. some ppl want cheaper car as they deem it’s fit for their usage. maybe only travel 2km a day within the neighbourhood, why need 6 airbags? it’s the buyer’s choice.

      How are they similar? Alza is the luxury high tech segment with kits like ASA and electronic parking and sequential lights.. The others are mass market kosong spec.
      and the math also need some rework, more like 40-50k cheaper, because if you go by spec, you have to take the price of spec X base model.

    It’s EEV-rated and capable of claimed 22.0 km/l fuel economy in the MDC. Eco Idle auto start-stop is standard. In Indonesia Daihatsu Xenia with 100% on highway with constant 80-100km/hr only manage to get 18km/l. The Eco Idle is merely to get the EEV certification and that’s it. With similar engine and transmission with myvi and getting almost same figure is very doubtful.

    • The perodua fuel efficiency data looks exaggerated. Any myvi or axia owner can get the claimed mileage? I personally cannot. 16km per L is max I achieved.

      • I managed 22km/l on the Axia manual before. It’s possible and it doesn’t even have the start-stop. Not sure on the automatic version though.

    It’s hard to achieve but not impossible.
    In fact I’ve done better occasionally.
    Must be sempoi driver and very light footed.
    Also 1 key element alot missed to mention is how cold is your aircond settings.

    On my previous 1.3 myvi lagi best, I’ve got 21km/l driving from Ipoh to hatyai.
    On my current Ativa I’ve got 22km/l driving from Ipoh to kampar via Pusing Town using the trunk roads.
